Allegheny County Controller Chelsa Wagner to be arraigned Monday in Detroit
Allegheny County Controller Chelsa Wagner and her husband plan to turn themselves in to Detroit authorities on Monday morning, prosecutors said Friday.
Wagner and her husband, Khari Mosley, will be arraigned via video conference from the Detroit Detention Center, Wayne County Assistant Prosecutor Maria Miller said. The live video feed will be broadcast before a magistrate at the 36th District Court in Detroit.
Detroit attorney Charles Longstreet is representing the defendants, Miller said. Longstreet could not be reached for comment.
The couple was charged Wednesday in connection with an incident involving police at a Detroit hotel earlier this month.
Wagner, 41, of Pittsburgh’s Point Breeze neighborhood, faces two felony counts of resisting and obstructing the police and a misdemeanor count of disorderly conduct.
Mosley, 42, was charged with two misdemeanor counts of disorderly conduct and disturbing the peace.
The charges stem from a March 6 incident at the Westin Book Cadillac Hotel. Wagner and Mosley were staying at the hotel while visiting the city on a belated Valentine’s Day trip.
Police say they detained Mosley after he caused a disturbance and arrested Wagner after she assaulted a police officer.
Wagner has told the Tribune-Review that police mischaracterized the incident and she described officers as the aggressors.
